I probably shouldn’t tell you this because I don’t “have a handle on it” yet. Not at all.
In fact, it sort of embarrasses me.
I spend a lot of my non-writing hours, worrying over my writing. Throughout the day, as I wash the dishes, sit in the school’s carpool line, or work at my paying gig, my mind whirls:
What should my character do next? What guest post should I pitch to MEGA-BLOG THAT EVERYONE READS? How do I squeeze in another hour to work on my book tomorrow?
Even when I’m not writing, I’m still writing.
Some of you do it, too, because you’ve told me, but we just might be hurting rather than helping ourselves.
